NASA TELEVISION TO BROADCAST SPACE STATION SPACEWALK

HOUSTON -- Two cosmonauts will conduct a six-hour spacewalk on 
Wednesday, Aug. 3, to continue outfitting the Russian segment of the 
International Space Station. NASA Television will broadcast the 
spacewalk beginning at 9 a.m. CDT. 

Expedition 28 Russian Flight Engineers Sergei Volkov and Alexander 
Samokutyaev will install laser communications equipment and replace 
experiments on the Zvezda service module. They also will retrieve a 
rendezvous antenna, relocate a boom structure to aid future 
spacewalks and deploy a small satellite equipped with an amateur 
radio transmitter and a student-built experiment. 

The duo will wear Russian Orlan spacesuits and will emerge from the 
Pirs docking compartment airlock at about 9:30 a.m. The spacewalk 
will be the third for Volkov, who performed two spacewalks as 
Expedition 17 commander in 2008. This will be the first spacewalk for 
Samokutyaev.
